Got up and packed and loaded everything into the car as the hotel wouldn't store out ****. Got to the car park bang in 10am. Parked up, followed some signs, and in a few minutes we were in Mexico. Some dudes with very big rifles. Walked over to downtown, avoiding the beggars and possible pick pockets, and wandered around for about an hour, had breakfast, about $6 each, and then decided to stop into a couple more shops ...

So that explained why it wasnt as big as we anticipated, but I still had a ball and loved seeing all the animals. We even went on the skyrail twice so we could see it from up top.
